Lego Star Wars Holiday Special review: “Lovingly pokes fun at the Star Wars saga”


The original Star Wars Holiday Special holds a special place in the fandom’s consciousness. Unanimously derided as two of the worst hours of television ever created, the cash-in that brought back Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher has been the kicker of dozens of jokes – even mocked by the people who appeared in it (Anthony Daniels once called the special a “turd”). Thanks to Disney Plus, the whole sordid affair has come round full circle with a new LEGO Holiday Special that lovingly pokes fun at the Star Wars saga without ever being mean-spirited or vindictive. What you expect, then, from a LEGO production.  

The 45-minute movie sees Rey and friends on Kashyyyk, the home planet of Chewbacca (and the same setting as the original Holiday Special) where they intend to celebrate Life Day. However, Rey quickly loses her temper with Finn, who has begun Jedi training, and she heads off to a new planet in search of a time-travelling object that will help with the training. Meanwhile, Finn, Poe, Chewie, and Rose are left behind to continue setting things up for Life Day celebrations, but it’s not the same without their entire extended family around.
